submitted article–The 2013-2015 Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis is now online, and will soon be available in hard copy at Service BC centres and local angling licence vendors throughout the province. The Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis is published every two years, and contains all non-salmon sport fishing regulations in effect in freshwater in British Columbia. The synopsis is the go-to sourcebook for anglers in the province. This year marks a first for the publication, with the cover photograph coming from a contest the ministry hosted in Fall 2012. Congratulations go to Rob deLange, whose photo depicts canoe angling on Cowichan Lake. This picture illustrates just one of B.C.’s many wonderful angling opportunities. For any shutterbugs that want to be similarly immortalized, a second contest is still underway for the cover of the 2014-2016 Hunting and Trapping Synopsis. Photographs must be emailed to synopsiscoverphoto@gov.bc.ca by Oct. 1, 2013, for the Hunting andTrapping Synopsis in order to be considered. Photos for the ongoing Hunting and Trapping Synopsis Regulations photo contest must be relevant to hunting or trapping in British Columbia, and there is no limit to the number of submissions that can be made.
